Gay literature at home in public library

While book giant Amazon.com mistakenly pulled more than 57,000 titles from their search engine on Sunday, many of them gay literature, the Calgary Public Library supports the alternative genre.

While book giant Amazon.com mistakenly pulled more than 57,000 titles from their search engine on Sunday, many of them gay literature, the Calgary Public Library supports the alternative genre.

The titles were removed as “an embarrassing error” according to Amazon, but people in the gay and lesbian community were questioning why. Certain titles were available again by Monday.

The Calgary Public Library has a gay and lesbian section and hasn’t had a problem with controversy.

“We have every subject known to mankind, including gay and lesbian and we treat them the same as any other,” spokesperson Grant Kaiser said.
